Free memory cannot been trusted as least on iOS i know. In Jungool example I have se so low as 5mb and then later around 30-35mb, property because its respons correctly to the "low memory", which glbasic does not do (here its just crash). There is a callback which need to been responsed when memory is low, and if its dosent do that, iOS might kill it (as well some other bg apps).

But you can detect the device on iOS and then you know how much ram they actuelly have. My game dosent have any of those problem since its only use around 20mb ram. often you have around 70mb ram my guess on older devices.

Howover Im not sure how other mobile os than iOS works about memory.
